End of an Era for BBC Fans in Canada

As of Dec 31 2020, BBC Canada ceased broadcasting to households. First launched in September 2001, the channel started off with great promise and hopes that one day the North American service could rival that of the UK original. Unfortunately for Canadian BBC fans, the channel never really achieved what many imagined it could.

Now it may be upsetting to hear that the BBC Canada is concluding so suddenly. However, to be totally honest, there has been a superior alternative to BBC Canada available to Canadian BBC fans for a while.

No Need to Panic

In the United Kingdom, rather than watching one of the BBC channels on free to air television, audiences are often choosing to stream their favourite content via the online BBC iPlayer service. This service has grown to become the go-to choice for audiences when they want to watch the TV series of films. The flexibility to watch a wide range of content at any time makes it rival the big players such as Disney Plus, Netflix or Amazon Prime.

The issue is that people living in Canada or elsewhere are blocked from streaming BBC iPlayer, even with an expensive VPN. That was until the launch of Beebs.
